Flynn Gold Limited (ASX: FG1, “Flynn” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce it has commenced a soil sampling program at the recently optioned Parker Dome lithium project in Western Australia1.
Geochemical soil sampling for lithium has commenced at the recently optioned Parker Dome project, situated 50km north of the world class Mount Holland lithium project in Western AustraliaThe soil sampling program will initially focus on the Western and Eastern Pegmatite Trends defined by historic RAB drillingSeveral of the historic drill holes intersected and terminated in pegmatite and were not assayed for lithiumSoil sampling will represent the first systematic lithium exploration undertaken at the projectSampling program expected to be completed in December with assay results due in early Q1 2024 after which the company plans to drill-test potential anomalies
The program is designed to provide first-pass geochemical coverage over the Western and Eastern pegmatite trends (Figure 2), delivering the first systematic lithium and associated pathfinder assays for the project.
Managing Director and CEO of Flynn Gold, Neil Marston commented,
“We have moved rapidly to commence on-ground exploration at Parker Dome with an initial soil program targeting two main pegmatite trends outlined by historic drilling.
“Soil sampling has proven to be a very effective and rapid method to assess prospective ground for lithium anomalies in both the Forrestania and Lake Johnston Belts. We expect the survey will generate new targets for drill testing and will complement targets generated from historic exploration drilling.
“The exploration team has mobilised to Marvel Loch and sampling work has commenced on the ground. We look forward to providing shareholders with updates as work progresses and results are received.”
Soil Sampling Program
A program of approximately 700 soil samples is planned in the current phase of work. Sampling will focus on providing first-pass coverage over the Western and Eastern pegmatite trends (Figure 2). The sampling program should be completed over the next 2 weeks with assay results expected early in Q1 2024.
